Can't reach the hypnagogia state.

Postby Rharuk » 26 Feb 2013 18:21

Hello, I'm new here and three days ago I restarted to interest for LD. I'm using the WILD technique to have LD , I go to bed and reach the point when i stop feeling my body, but the hypnagogia images never come even with hours staying still on my back. Do you guys have any ideas? I would really appreciate it.

Thanks!

Some of us dont usually get into hypnagogia. I myself tend to just WILD without it and the first images I'll get will be inside a dream. (Usually actually I'll just feel myself in a dream first)

If you cant feel your body no more..try at that point to think about yourself being somewhere else in your body.. that may help you shift your consciousness elsewhere.

or you can try doing LD when more tired so you cant be laying there on your back for hours and something will have to then occur before that. You will either succede with causing a WILD or you will fall asleep.

I find it easier to have HI when I first go to bed at night, but that's not a good time to do WILD. You should have 5-7 hours of sleep before doing WILD. I also have trouble getting HI to start, that's my biggest problem. 2 things I do to help. The first is relax and try to let your mind be less active about things like what you have to do today or worrying about some problems, etc. Try to let the creative side of your mind be more active, I do this by just fantasizing about things and making up stories in my mind. Sometimes I use things that have happened in my life and try to imagine them with changes, just get the imagination going. This works really well for me to get HI going. If you want to try that, let us know if that works for you.
Have you ever had a dream, Neo, that you were so sure was real? What if you were unable to wake from that dream? How would you know the difference between the dream world and the real world? Morpheus

Practice doing reality checks too so if you do loose awareness so you may suddenly become aware in your dreams. Best chance of a soon success is boosting all the ways it could happen.

Accidentally found another way to induce HI. I was in bed trying to WILD and was thinking of something, but didn't have the exact word like when you can't remember someone's name. I kept trying to find the word and went straight into HI. Tied it again later and just pretended I didn't know the word and that worked to.

Would like to know if anyone has used this and not give it a try and let us know.
